Still an early prototype, but this is flatkvm, a tool to easily run fully isolated with QEMU/KVM. This is what I've been doing when I should've been sleeping 😜

At the end of last year I received my Librem 5 devkit from @Purism, this week I'll play with it and toot about it. For the moment, here are photos of the devkit and what it came with, sizes are in centimeters and impressise because of perspective.

#PavelDurov the founder of #vkontakte and #telegram is lying about their software.

Pavel states that telegram is opensource, while it's actually *not*.

It's such an open and shameless lie, that one should ask, where else does he lie to me?

''In 2005, Pavel completed his training at the Faculty of Military Studies of St. Petersburg State University with a specialization in Propaganda and Psychological Warfare. While training with the Faculty of Military Studies, he served as Platoon Commander of the Philology Department. Upon completion, he was awarded the title of Lieutenant of the Reserve Force. Immediately after graduating in 2006, Pavel created the social network Vkontakte.ru''

The Bitcoin and Ethereum mining networks combined consume (waste?) more energy than Greece. digiconomist.net/ethereum-ener

Amazing talk about SiliVaccine, a North Korean (fishy) antivirus based on illegally obtained Trend Micro software code.

The nice folks behind Conversations.im (IMHO, the best IM service/client for Android) have released Quciksy, a variant which synchronizes contacts using your phone number (like WhatsApp).

If you have a few minutes to spare, take a look at it:

Reading AWS Firecracker's sources. I have to say this is the finest piece of Rust code I've seen so far.

I wonder how its virtio-blk implementation performs. I'll try to run some fio tests on it (probably not today).

- Busco un juego de estrategia sencillo. Encuentro el C&C: Rivals. Lo instalo.

- Primera partida, veo buenos gráficos y mecánicas interesantes.

- Termino la partida, me tiran una puñetera lootbox a la cara.

- Lo desinstalo. Buscaba un videojuego, no una tragaperras.

@sireebob i don't know of any, but here's my list:

Antennapod - podcast listening
SimpleGallery - better gallery than default android
Redreader - reddit
Davdroid/nextcloud/nextcloud notes - nextcloud wuth calendar support
Simpledraw - for simple drawing over images
K9 - email client
Openscale - weight tracking (it does other stuff too)
Your local weather - weather
Transistor - m3u/pls streaming
Tusky - fediverse

@phoe @sir @slp the new ircv3 tags try to bring these features to IRC, while keeping it as it were before. attached is a screenshot of the message-reply IRCv3 tag draft demoed in irccloud.

I've just migrated one of my personal services to a OpenBSD VPS, and I'm honestly impressed by the quality of OpenSMTDd. The first SMTP with a configuration that actually makes sense. Kudos to the devs!

Verifying that the keepass client I'm using on Android still doesn't have android.permission.INTERNET

@slp That said, the day Apple becomes a little less hostile to GNU/Linux (acknowledging it exists and porting iTunes would be a nice first step) I'll seriously consider switching to an iPhone.

Not a fan if their closed-source policy, but at least they have sane privacy defaults.

Just when I was considering giving up on AOSP due to the terrible performance or the stock (unmaintained) Camera app, I've noticed I can use Google Camera after installing microG, without giving the later any kind of permission or enabling it to actually use any Google service.
